dianne feinstein said she'll look into the 2011 questioning of the older brother, tamerlan tsarnaev. a number of lawmakers are going after the fbi, questioning if the agency failed to notice any red flags there. and in another classified hearing later this evening, leaders from the fbi, homeland security and the national counter terrorism center will brief house members on the case as well. that is also a classified hearing. earlier today, janet napolitano on how they left the u.s. for russia. >> is it true that his identity document did not match his airline ticket and if so, why did tsa police the discrepancy? >> even with the misspelling under our current system, there are redundancies, and so the system did ping when he was leaving the united states. >> meanwhile, vice president joe biden is going to attend tomorrow's memorial for the murdered m.i.t. police officer sean collier. the family of the 8-year-old victim martin richard, held a private funeral this morning. they will hold a public memorial in the coming weeks. local hospitals say 45 people remain in medical care. that i
that must have been for him. then tamerlan the older brother, 26 years old in this family that we are learning a lot about this morning, the 26-year-old who is now dead was -- had bullet wound in the shootout with the police after he and his brother threw explosives out of their moving car. unfortunately they could not save him at the hospital in order to get nor or ou get more out of him. he he had shrapnel in his body. which leads everybody to believe he was going to set off another bomb in this nightmare that has gripped this whole area of boston and cambridge and watertown, wonderful towns in great state of massachusetts that have been rocked in a way they have never experienced before. this it is a very difficult day and he is still at large, so we will continue with our breaking news coverage of this story. joined now by jon scott and jenna lee as well. jon: what an incredible 18 hours it has been, martha. just since 5:00pm eastern time yesterday when the police released the pictures, the fbi released these pictures, to you will lee not these pictures, b but -- released thes
tsarnaev. an exclusive against tamerlan. a source in russia tells nbc news russian intelligence reached out to the fbi last november about the 26-year-old. and crime scene units are back at the bomb site in boston right now. they're placing debris into garbage trucks. crews were seen sifting last night throughout that debris. let's go to pete williams. with a good afternoon to you, pete, let's talk first about the status of the charges in this case and what the likely charges will be. >> yes, i think the odds are pretty good that we'll see these charges in the next couple of hours. they're putting the final touches on them now. and we expect to learn a little more about what the fbi has assembled based on its investigation of the bombing. so perhaps there will be some new details that we'll get. in terms of the charges, i would think at the very least they'll charge him with the bombing, with a terrorism offense for that. and interestingly enough, under the federal statutes, which apply here, use of a weapon of mass destruction, which is the federal law version of what a bomb is, if death r
: eric shawn live in boston. eric, thank you. we are still trying to get to the real story on tamerlan tsarnaev's trip to russia last year and his possible ties to terrorism and islamic extremism. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge is following that thread tonight. >> the fbi's handling of tamerlan tsarnaev in 2011 and six-month trip to russia the following year now face congressional scrutiny. >> was your department aware of his travels to russia and, if you weren't, the reason? >> yes. the system pinged when he was leaving the united states. by the time he returned all investigations had been -- the matter had been closed. >> napolitano said the lookout system that flags agents federal investigation no longer active when tamerlan returned from russia in july of 2012. >> the system picked up departure but did not pick him coming back, correct? >> the fbi text alert on him at that point was more than a year old and had expired. >> napolitano's pluck contradict briefing given by the fbi director. >> after talking to the fbi they told me they had no knowledge of him leav
question this morning is: how much did other members of their family know? keep in mind that tamerlan, the 26-year-old suspect who was killed on thursday night moving into friday, that he was married. he was married to an american woman who became a muslim after she married him. they had a three-year-old daughter together. it's questionable now whether or not they were actually still together at the time of this bombing. some sources are saying that she, catherine, pictured here, had moved back home with her mother, judith, with the baby. and maybe that would be when tamerlan ended up going back to russia for those six months because if you're married and you have a small child, you might wonder, that would be suspicious to be gone for six months. >>steve: she is on the cover of the new york post today because she always dreamed of growing up, joining the peace corps and serving this country and others abroad. then she got tangled up with this guy, converted to islam. next thing you know, she dropped out. there is an interesting item in the "wall street journal" today that says essent
and tamerlan, the older brother, stood up and argued. then in january there was a praise for martin luther king jr. and he got up and called someone a hypocrite. he had to leave. >>gretchen: ostensibly this younger guy didn't know anything about the bombing until a week before. if that is true, that lends to what we were discussing this morning that he was just an underling. it brings out the story that the parents were absent. the parents had gone back to russia and this 19-year-old kid was able to be swayed by the older brother. it appears he was the one that radicalized himself. i'm not saying he's not to blame at all. >>brian: there's no way you should believe -- everyone's apparently running with this story. you've got to be kidding me. you question him for 90 seconds as he's come out of a harrowing situation like this. he's in self-preservation mode. this guy needs to be questioned for a couple of weeks, needs to see if his story line is up. then you've got to drill down on it with professional interrogators. he does not need to see his miranda rights read to him in bed. laughable. >>stev
. if the russian government was so concerned about tamerlan as to alert our fbi and our government, and warrant an investigation of him, why are we so sure that dzhokhar is not connected to a cell of some sort back at home that might then make him an enemy combatant and then, two, if he is name an enemy combatant and treated as an everybody me combatant, that doesn't mean that he cannot be tried in a civilian court. correct? >> that's correct. in fact, he is not allowed to be under the military commission law. 20, it exempts american citizens. so there is that. they could hold him indefinitely. that has to be done, maybe, and maybe not because he is a civilian. that's a question the supreme court has not answered. the purpose has to be to keep him off the battlefield. not to interrogate him. and what you're saerg is interrogation, be to keep him off the battlefield. and point, two it is certainly possible. he is involved in a larger network of cells that may be affiliated with al qaeda. that's why the fbi has deployed interrogators. that's why they will ask him before they mirandize him. that's
muslims more than it does. that's going to take it up discussion. we learned today tamerlan was kicked off a mosque because being too radical. what peter king will do with that information, based on experience, say that's proof we need to more closely monitor people in this country. i'm not sure you need to go that far. this is somebody who was in a citizenship cue and had that process delayed because of going back and forth to russia. it might have been a specific case we missed and not something to look at as it expands ever more the investigation of muslims in general. something the system should have captured but we will discuss broad solutions, broad ideas not just republicans but national security hawks wanted whatever the situation is. >> we'll leave it there. go ahead, lynn. jump in. >> a quick point. this comes as the immigration bill is being kbeebt edebated i senate. >> we'll talk about that later in the broadcast. thanks to you all. appreciate your time. >>> the fbi again, interviews, in e did not find any terrorist links to him. how did that happen? i'll ask a senior member of
's -- and the brother, tamerlan tsarnaev had the ploes sifs strapped to him. no indication that dzhokhar did. and he obviously tried to make an escape. so what does that tell you about his own state of mind and you know the idea some of these guys want to be a martyr to a case an if there is a cause and we don't know. some of them want to live. >> it tells me there's just what you said. there's a lot of people saying i'm willing to die but they don't necessariry want to die. this guy could have died. he could have leaned out of the boat and cranked out a couple more rounds and they would have put him down. but he chose not to. tactically they did everything they could to get him out of there alive. he could have committed that suicide. as long as we see the vid act of wanting to sur vief we have something to play with. we can dance with the devil to get information to save lives as long as we know this guy will not see the light of day outside of a prison again. >> where do you suppose they will take this line of questioning, clint? well, is that to me, chris? yeah. >> yeah. the things we're trying
in new york . in the meantime f.b.i. questioned 26 year old tamerlan tsarnaev two years ago and it may have been on with more than one occasion. what are we learning on that front. >> it is interesting that the f.b.i. didn't identify the foreign government that warned the u.s. about him. it little doubt it russia. russia critized the u.s. for ignoring the chechen threat. >> i met with the foreign minister and police officials. we were discussing security things. everyone of them told me. go back and tell president bush take these people seriously. thape are very dangerous. >> it may not be coincidental that president putin offered condollences over the boston attack. given the extensive postingings of jihad i felt videos it is peculliar that the f.b.i. did not follow up. >> how sustained was this process bypass the f.b.i. to cover him. did they do that . technical coverage and run sources at him. how long did this go on? i serve agency for a couple of decades. if the ssb russian internal security told us someone involve would with the chechens they would in my mind need a period. the m
whether the elder son tamerlan, actually did meet someone suspicious. we know that he was with his father. his father has spoken at length about both sons actually. he did confirm the man did come out and visit and stayed with them. both parents have actually said that they believe both sons, the 26-year-old tamerlan, now deceased, and the 19-year-old dzhokhar, the one who's in custody in the hospital, they say that they were framed. and the mother has actually accused the fbi of regularly harassing the family. she says because they are chechens, ethnic chechens. now, the parents have been living more recently in dagestan which is in the north caucuses region. now, this is a very troubled area. it's a small russian republic, but it's neighboring chechnya. both of these areas have seen a lot of conflict, particularly an active separatist group in dagestan right now, there's a mission taking place in the area to clean up what the government says is a guerrilla group. now, the mother, of course, has described her sons as good people and that they were persecuted because they were chechens an
that ended with a surprisingly subdued ending on friday night. 26-year-old tamerlan tsarnaev was pronounced dead after a dramatic shootout with law enforcement early friday morning. his 19-year-old dzhokhar escaped on foot precipitating a shelter in place order for the entire boston area. but the much sought after armed and dangerous teen was found wounded and incoherent in a boat parked in the backyard of a suburban watertown home. discovered not by the hundreds of armed officers who had been searching for him for hours but by the home's owner, reportedly out for a smoke. with one assailant dead and the other in police custody, the people of watertown and the entire boston area expressed their enormous gratitude and sense of relief with spontaneous cheers and applause on friday night. the crisis is over. now the politics begin and this is where our responsibility in the media shifts. in the heat of the crisis, media take on the job of informational clearinghouse, keeping the public up to date, sharing critical information and get the information out right and fast. granted, those are goals
